For those players who wheel their numbers for pick-5, and pick-6 games, I have a few questions.

 I'm wondering...

1) How many drawings do you stay with the same wheel of numbers?

2) If your number selections in the wheel do not appear for the drawing, do you change all numbers in the wheel, or some of the numbers?

    Hi Lj1,

       #1.      7 days

       #2.       all the numbers.

       On my part anyway, I've had pretty good sucess using the above strategy.

      Thx MADDOG10,

      I seem to get the impression at times to scrap the whole wheel after a drawing, and try a new set of numbers to the same wheel because of current budget. I thought of keeping some numbers in the wheel in hopes they appear in next drawing. I do see in reviewing the results of a draw, some numbers in the wheel do appear.

        One of the fun things about the lottery is no clear answers. 

        Questions are answered by the individual game and they can change over time. 

        If you are working with lottery software, the typical answer is to update the data base with each draw and run the "prediction" routine, apply those numbers to a fresh wheel.

        If you are doing a paper and pencil workout, you can do anything you want, though it should be based on your observations of your particular game.  For example, you could do a workout once every eight weeks, and play the resulting combinations for the next eight weeks. 

        The first method has you chasing the lottery.  The second method stands the lottery on its head, you have a block of numbers/lines on the wall and for eight weeks the lottery throws its numbers at them.

          Wheels are only as good as the numbers you enter in to them.

          How many numbers do you Wheel for Pick-5 (20) and Pick-6 (25) Games?

          How often do you have all 5 or 6 Numbers in that 20 or 25 (rarely/never)?

          Sticking with a group of 20 or 25 numbers, may over time give good results.

          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!
